1201 Normandy Place is a speculative 137,000 square foot R&D lab building at the Navy Yard in Philadelphia. The project represents the first new development initiated as part of Ensemble/Mosaic and Oxford’s recently executed strategic partnership.
The building was designed in consultation with CRB, a leading lab designer, to be the most sophisticated lab building in the region optimized for cell and gene therapy R&D companies, while maintaining the flexibility to accommodate all users. The modern four-story facility will feature 137,000 square feet of highly customizable lab space and will be able to support life science customers ranging from 5,000-35,000 square feet per floor. Special user-specific considerations include 15’-16’ floor-to-floor ceiling heights, predetermined GMP space, structural integrity that minimizes vibration and two loading docks. The robust utility and safety features include a central plant HVAC system with water cooled chillers, customizable electrical output and layout as well as built-in emergency power. Occupants will also have access to collaborative workspace, an outdoor balcony on each floor and a ground level café. The building is projected to achieve LEED Gold Certification.
